The Swellesley Report reports that around 12:50 a.m. one recent morning an officer was dispatched to a local synagogue on a report of somebody banging on the door - by somebody inside who was not about to open the door at 12:50 a.m. Police say it was a local teen who told the officer he saw lights on and was curious about what was going on inside. The officer told him he could better satisfy his curiosity by calling the temple during normal business hours and asking.

Somebody who doesn't appear to be a member of the Wellesley Gardeners' Guild is going around watering the public flower boxes around the post offices in Wellesley Square and Wellesley Hills before guild members can - and is killing the plants through overwatering. Deb Brown reports.

I’ve been scheduled for duty for the past week, and when I showed up only to find that someone had gotten there before me, soaking the drought-resistant plants within an inch of their lives, it put my anxiety level through the roof, let me tell you. Some of plants had actually given up, drowned - blub, blub, blub - by too much of a good thing.

I did what any panicked garden club member would do. I emailed that most august of garden club figures, the Chair of Civic Improvements of the Post Offices.

The American Lawyer talks to William Lee, a partner in a prestigious downtown law firm about an incident in August as he was filling up his Mercedes SUV at a gas station near his Wellesley home.

“Why don’t you go back to your own country,” the man said, according to Lee. ...

The Swellesley Report reports students from the two schools will march to a park about midway between each tomorrow to try to make up over that post-election frat-boy thing.

UPDATE: Students exonerated.

One of the Babson dudes who drove around Wellesley College to taunt students there after the election apologized today for being a jerk. No word if his apology is enough to get him back into his frat, which kicked him out.

The Walpole guy who posed in front of a local Mexican restaurant with a large Trump banner, then posted on Facebook that the owners would be paying for the wall, apologized - by way of a full-page ad in the Walpole Times. He says he meant no offense, he was just in a joking kind of mood and besides, it was only that he's a Facebook dunce that he made the post public.

The Globe reports the good ol' boys were driving around campus being "disruptive" to students. And by "disruptive," they may mean parking outside a center for African and African-American students and jeering and spitting before being booted off campus and going back to Babson.
